Pyjamas are forgiving is the story of Anshu who went to  Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa in Kerala to take a break. At Shanthamaaya, There’s a strict Routine that one desires to observe to remove their dosha. Her days there have been going best, she met some new people, the days were just fine till One person came to Shanthamaaya which affected her the most. Her Ex-Husband with his young wife. Will Shanthamaaya will be the same for her now? Will the presence of her ex-husband have an effect on her treatment?

Pyjamas are Forgiving, The story is As appealing the name is. The cover tells a lot about the story. The plot of the story is unique and remarkable. The narration of the story is apt. I Cherished the writing style of the author. It’s Lucid and Gripping.

This book revolves around Yoga, wellness, meditation, healing and Forgiving. Its a read full of Humor, Friendship, Self-love and Love. A refreshing read with some light, funny moments which will melt your heart. Some moments that will make you cry. The language used by the author is simple and crisp. one can effortlessly relate to the story.  The story strongly emphasizes at the spirit of never giving up which is a must in today’s era.

The characters that the author made were Interesting. Each having their own personality. I loved Jenna’s and Vivaan’s character. They were full of excitement. I adored Anshu’s character too. It takes courage to face the cruel world, she happily faced it. Her nature, her take on life, was just different. You may find empathy for her but will also love how she faces each and every situation.Vidhya Thakkar- Indian blogger, Mumbai blogger, book blogger, Book blogger Mumbai, Book blogger India, lifestyle blogger, product reviewer

With each chapter, the story keeps on building great. The drama keeps the reader invested in. The Climax of the story is amazing and definitely distinct. The pace of the story is a bit slow. the flow of the story is smooth. At places, it was difficult to connect with the story because of sudden shifting of the plot from Present to past.

Overall it’s a wonderful story with a different plot, crisp narration, Interesting characters and with lots of funny moments. It also tells about so many things that are happening in the world right now. A light and a quick read.

There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of, unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife.
In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex forbidden and emotions centred, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers.

    I have read many reviews of this book and none of them was positive. In fact, I clearly remember one had said this book lacks Twinkle Khanna’s trademark humour. However, yours is the first positive review and this tempts me to get the book. Thanks Vidhya.

  9. Dipika

    I am so glad you wrote a review from the heart about this book, I am a fan of Mrs. Funnybones writing skills, but the reviews have read lately about this book turned me sour.
    Looking forward to get my copy soon.

    Interesting Review Vidhya. Many people didn’t like it much. May be their expectations were pretty high. I like Twinkle’s way of expressing her point of view. Will read it for sure.
